Davenport Family Graveyards

Around Cherry / Creswell, Washington Co, NC


 Linda Haas Davenport


I transcribed this cemetery July 16, 1988. As far as I know no one has been buried in this graveyard since then.

Cemetery is located in a field where New Land Road and Phelps Lake Road intersects. If you are coming down New Land Road going toward Creswell the field is on your right. To get to the graveyard turn right onto Phelps Lake Road and when you are even with the graveyard, park and walk out into the field.

According to Elizabeth (aka Betty Lou) Phelps VanHorn "there is another, small grave but I can't remember which side it is on...beside 5 or beside 7. This additional site is the infant daughter, Mittie Susan Thomas, of my aunt, Charlotte Phelps Thomas. The child died at birth or just a very short time after."
